    For sales people that know how to sell there is no churn. For sales people that can't sell or can't work, they don't earn any money and end up with no commission and no job. During the interview ... More

    Pros

    I no longer waste my time working for this company

    Cons

    Everything. Owner is the worst. HR sucks and everyone is a vice president it seems. It's just as easy to set up your own wholesaler which I did and haven't looked back. Made three figures selling items online on my own site offering better pricing and better margins in my pocket. Don't waste your time working for this company when just as easily start your own and make more money.

    Advice to Management

    Close down company it's a fraud.

    Our HR team does a great job everyday and when they have to recover company inventory they do a very good job. No company would allow an ex sales person to steal company inventory.

    Pros

    They sell everything that plugs in as well as every software product on the market.

    Cons

    GHA Technologies is a company where you work commission only with promises to pay you for going on appointments. They will do everything they possible can to not pay you. The company sucks.

    Advice to Management

    I really did not have a Manager, I was assigned a mentor. The one thing that stands out during training at the Headquarters is that no one seem to be happy. All the employees are totally scared of the CEO.

    Good pricing Manufactures relationships are established with the sales rep.

    Telemarketing focus without getting paid huge turnover out of 130 sales people maybe 20 making real money .. required to make fifty calls daily if not you are not allowed any type of client incentives ... I wonder if the department of labor has any investigation on that ? you are expected to make calls for the company but are not getting compensated.?????? gray area

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work here.. they promise you the moon and make it sound easy to get extra bonuses but when it comes down to it they are almost impossible to achieve.

    Cons

    No CRM tool. Demands are ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Get better ordering system. Lighten up on demands on your sales rep. Example, it a rep has a days travel to visit a customer with a manufacturers rep how can they still make 25, 45 seconds calls. that makes it impossible to get the bonus.

    Pros

    There are none. Get a real job. You will be broke when you leave. I gave it one star because it was the lowest.

    Cons

    This job is a waste of time. Most of the new sales reps wash out in the first six months. There are few people making over $100,000, many under $50,000 even people that have been there for a long time. You assume all the risks of running a business. Any bill not paid after 30 days stops commissions. If never paid, you pay it back. Be prepared to work 12 hours a day. There are no benefits here. Insurance is available if you meet quota. I was not aware that any one in our group was able to meet quota or get benefits. They pay your telephone and give you an email. The sales volume of the Company does not mean anything. You are paid a per cent of the profit on the job. This can be 2-3% of the sale goes to the salesman. If you sold $1,000,000, this becomes $20,000. Not many in the Company sell $1,000,000 a year anyways. And prepare to be ridiculed and humiliated for your mistakes as the owner encourages mentors to share their opinions with others via email. Be prepared to use savings to pay your bills because your paychecks will be few. You will get fired at the whim of the owner. You can get hired here easily because you work for free and you cost them nothing. And they even pressure you until you quit or get fired.
